ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019: 100 Days-to-Go

The ODI World Cup is scheduled to take place in India in October and November this year, and now more details are emerging about exactly when the prestigious event will begin and end.

48 matches across 46 days are planned for the tournament, and they will see 10 of the best teams in the world go head to head to be crowned the best of the best.

ESPNcricinfo reports that this massive event will likely occur from October 5 to November 19, with the final confirmed to be held in the 132 000 capacity Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the biggest stadium in the world.

No other venues have been confirmed, but the report also states that the BCCI has shortlisted 11 locations across India to host matches during the tournament.

The participating nations are also yet to be confirmed, with only seven of the eight teams from the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League locked in: England, New Zealand, India (hosts), Bangladesh, Pakistan, Australia, and Afghanistan.

The teams who don't make automatic qualification through the super league will vie for the remaining two spots in a secondary qualification tournament to be held in Zimbabwe later this year.

Political issues have stopped the BCCI from officially confirming the schedule. One key factor is the ICC's request to secure entry visas for the Pakistan team, which has not played in India outside of ICC events since 2013.

However, this issue is considered close to being resolved, and upon the resolution of the tax-related problems between the ICC and the Indian government, the official schedule will be announced.

Currently, the rank one and two ODI nations in the world are previewing what the tournament will be like in Indian conditions, those being India and Australia. Their three-match series is currently tied at one apiece, with the decider set to take place tonight at 7 PM AEDT.
